new-stoveThe old stove which was in the house had seen it’s day and the glass on the door cracked. Got a super deal on a Hotpoint which cooks like a stove should. The wife is happy and the food is good.

A sudden wind blowing snow hit my place about 4 days ago pulling the power wire anchor out of the wall of the house. This wire goes to my shop and pump house.

The wire didn’t come down in the high wind which reached up to about 80mphbut the insulated anchor was ripped out of the wall. Using a ladder I mounted a pulley on to the wall and tied a rope to the insulated connector and down through the pulley. I then had a friend pull the rope through the pulley. I was then able to secure power wire to wall.

This is not a permanent fix but takes the stress of the wire until I can fix it properly. Just lucky it did not snap the wire initially.
